Paul Whitfield opened the Manchester office in 2010 when he established Fox Whitfield.

Sarah Russell operates from the Manchester office. Sarah offers evening and weekend meetings for client’s unable to meet during normal working hours.

The Manchester Office undertakes a full range of employment law work for all sizes of employers and for employees.  Many of our employer clients have been with us from day one and value the honest, pragmatic and commercial advice they get.

The office is also very experienced in dealing with settlement agreements (formerly known as compromise agreements) for both employers and employees. For employers we can draft agreements and negotiate the terms on their behalf. For employees who are offered compromise agreements we will give honest advice about the terms offered and work with our clients to achieve the best settlement. All employees who are offered compromise agreements must take independent legal advice from a lawyer for it be valid and the employer will normally pay towards the cost of this advice. Wherever possible we try to work within the fees payable by the employer.
